When I joined HHL as a research associate at the Chair of Strategy and Organization in 1995 HHL’s doctoral program was about to start. What I learned at our Chair is the unsubstitutable basis for my whole academic career. As a highlight, Arnis Vilks’ course Philosophy of Science opened up topics for me which I profit from almost on a daily basis. Thus, HHL’s wide and fruitful international network became and still is my academic home.
HHL equipped me with the foundation for a professional path that I could have never scripted. From the classroom in Leipzig to investment banks in Frankfurt, the City of London and Wall Street, to a senior corporate strategy role at a Fortune 1000 company in Memphis, Tennessee. Within only ten years of graduating from HHL, I have already had the opportunity to experience a diverse range of first career steps – and I am very much looking forward to what’s still to come.
After HHL, I took a global career path. HHL prepared me with an internationally highly competitive business education and important lessons in general management and leadership. Besides knowledge, one of the key benefits are the connections I made to fellow students and faculty during my studies – an excellent network – growing in value year by year.
HHL Alumni are organized throughout various Chapters and meet up on a regular basis. HHL Dean and Chancellor visit the Chapters once per year to keep strong bonds with the HHL Community. In this context, they will also inform about the latest projects and achievements at your alma mater.
Additionally, HHL has a Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS) Chapter. BGS is a scholastic honor society of business schools accredited by AACSB International (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools). The society was established to encourage and honor academic achievement in the study of business, and to foster personal and professional excellence among its members.
The HHL Alumni Homecoming has a long tradition at HHL. On the second weekend of September, HHL Alumni reunite in Leipzig, celebrating their Homecoming and remembering their time at HHL. It is a great opportunity to meet up with the HHL Community and to enhance one’s personal network. In particular, our jubilee classes are most welcome and warmly invited to celebrate their 5th 10th, 15th & 20th anniversary with HHL and their fellow Alumni.
